Photographer Jessica Knudsen of JLKay Photography and a stellar bridal team come together on a shoot to celebrate Utah’s iconic landscapes at Snowbasin Resort.
Oh, how we love those misty mountains of Utah! And what makes them even prettier than some sparkle and a couple of beautiful people in love.
Sean and Ayesha, lovers from two different countries, took a bit of time to discover they were meant to be. They dated around in each other’s friend groups for two whole years before they finally realized they were destined for each other, and turned their friendship into a romantic adventure culminating in this pretty, fireworks-filled bridal session. (And we aren’t just talking about the sparklers!)
“The mountains have always inspired me, and this photoshoot was a combination of these mountains and a gorgeous, adventurous couple,” says photographer Jessica Knudsen. “We spent a good part of two hours exploring the gorgeous canyon at Snow Basin, lighting up sparklers and dancing in the moonlight. Ayesha and Sean were so amazing and were willing to trek around looking for those magic spots!”
Rich blooms in a magnificent bouquet by Cottage Garden Floral bring every eye right to the couple, and help the arrangement stand out against the lush green landscape. Wrap it all up in stunning fashions for both the groom and the bride, with flawless, timeless glam to complement the bride’s natural beauty, and you have a shoot for the ages. It’s not easy to show up Utah’s mountain views, but this team had it in the bag. Scroll on for more awe-inspiring magic!
